Over 300 council homes, that were illegally sublet or occupied by fraudsters, have been seized back by one London Council.
The London Borough of Southwark says it has discovered widespread abuse by tenants, who are secretly moving elsewhere and renting out their council homes for profit.
One example was a two-bedroom maisonette owned by Southwark Council in Peckham. It was let to a tenant for around £109 per week.
But authorities discovered he owned a property in Kent and was subletting the Peckham flat, earning himself around £500 per week.
The flat fell into a dilapidated state and the council are now making repairs before letting it to a deserving tenant.
